fix meal times for the child, that is with family meal timings. Keep a gap of at least 2-3 hours between the feeds be it milk or solid. Don't let the child eat in between. Give healthy options, which should be what the family is eating. Children mimic their parents in eating behaviour, so you should eat those healthy foods first, which you want your child to eat. Try including the favourite healthy options for the meals. You can make snacks healthier by using whole grain flour, vegetables & fruits. Try & make regular food interesting like chapatti veggies as Kathi roll or vegetables, cheese/shredded chicken spread over roti with ketchup. Give variety your child in foods like porridge, kheer, upma, khichri, chapatti/rice with pulses/gravies, scrambled eggs, custards, poha, idli, pulao etc.
